The Indian media which sensationally highlighted the recent Thailand cave excavation of young football team, sadly has failed to pressurize the Central government about this rescue operation which has entered its 16th day. This issue has only gained pace after a major leader of opposition citicised the prime minister on social media. Unlike the case of Prince the boy who got stuck in a borewell in Kurukshetra district of Haryana, which attracted a lot of mileage both from media and the political fraternity.. but this case seems to have taken a back-foot, probably because it happened in one of the states of the seven sisters.
